Introduction

Pico Neo 3 Pro is part of the Pico VR.

On May 10, 2021, Pico Interactive announced an extension to their Neo 3 line - the Pico Neo 3 Pro and Pico Neo 3 Pro Eye. These devices are the next generation for enterprise-grade VR solutions and a notable upgrade from the Pico Neo 2 line. The Neo 3 Pro and 3 Pro Eye are set for release in the latter half of 2021 and will be available in western markets including North America and Europe.

The enterprise options in the Neo 3 line have similar specs to the consumer-level Neo 3. They have the same Snapdragon XR2 processor, Wifi 6 capabilities, and 4 cameras to name a few. The Neo 3 is only available in China, whereas the 3 Pro and 3 Pro Eye will be available in the west.[1]

Hardware

The Neo 3 Pro and 3 Pro Eye can stream PC games through Direct Mode by way of a Displayport cable and the Pico VR streaming assistant. Direct Mode is "a high-performance, low-latency way to render PC VR content to Pico HMD display."[2]

Like its predecessors, the Neo 3 line is counterbalanced by having the battery pack on the rear of the headset. Like the Pico Neo 2 Eye, the Neo 3 Pro Eye also has eye tracking powered by the Swedish company Tobii.

Compare the enterprise options in the Neo 3 line to the Neo 2 line:

Neo 3 Pro & 3 Pro Eye Neo 2 & 2 Eye
Tracking optical electromagnetic
Cameras 4 2
FOV 98 degrees 101 degrees
IPD manually adjustable, 3 settings software adjustable
Play Space 10x10m 3x3m

Setup Tutorial

Input Devices

The Neo 3 Pro and 3 Pro Eye come with 2 new controllers with 6DoF that use 32 optical tracking sensors and 4 wide-angled cameras for improved latency, positioning, and tracking.[3]

Accessories

The headsets come with replaceable PU face cushions that can be sterilized, making it more hygenic to share with others in the office.[4]

Apps

The 3 Pro and 3 Pro Eye supports NVIDIA CloudXR™ which enables wireless streaming through 5G and WiFi networks and allows companies to integrate VR into their workflows such as "design reviews, virtual production, location-based entertainment and more." [3]

Stores

The new line supports development of apps through all major engines as well as openXR (open development architecture).[3]
